Starship Troopers TC[]


Starship Troopers TC is a total conversion for Duke Nukem 3D (for version 1.3d of Duke Nukem 3D, as well as Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition). It was created by Bgame Productions. It features new levels, new weapons, new sprites for the player (MI trooper) and enemies, new graphics, new items, and new music. The mod was well-known for the high level of quality on Dukeworld.


Starship Troopers TC started development in 1998. The mod had a second demo version released on May 25th, 1999 and contained one level, two new weapons, and two new enemies; the full version was released on June 20th, 2000 and contained 24 levels, nine new weapons, and six new enemies. The mod's first patch was made to include additional multiplayer support and fix glitches with the secret level in episode two; the patch was released on June 30th, 2000. Another patch was made to fix a bug when using the Microsoft Windows installation process for the mod; the patch was originally released on August 9th, 2004 and later updated on July 22nd, 2005. A version of Starship Troopers TC was made to be compatible with the EDuke32 source port; it was released on June 14th, 2009. A map pack containing 20 extra levels was released for the EDuke32 version of Starship Troopers TC on June 15th, 2009.
